Young Women Leaders Program

The Young Women Leaders Program (YWLP) is a mentoring program that pairs Michigan Tech female undergraduates with local middle-school girls.

The mentoring program focuses on empowering girls to:

  • set goals,
  • build positive self-esteem,
  • learn strategies for dealing with stress, and
  • develop leadership, problem solving, and communication skills.

YWLP is a year-long mentoring commitment. Michigan Tech students selected for YWLP will complete mentor training during fall semester and start mentoring during the following spring semester. For more information about YWLP, check out the program brochure!
